The photos show the two lamps( bulbs grow in the ground says my electrical mate) and the bike before and after. A bit difference especially daytime with headlights off.

I like that. No heat issues to worry about?

LED's do not emit much heat, only an increase in wattage of an incandescent lamp would be a problem.

Given the letter of the law below, in Virginia if add two aux lights to the front, you would be required to change the little pilot light bulb to amber.  In practice, a motorcycle may not have more than 4 white lights facing the front of the vehicle.  With aux lights, the pilot light is the fifth.

§ 46.2-1012. Headlights, auxiliary headlights, tail lights, brake lights, and illumination of license plates on motorcycles or autocycles.
Every motorcycle or autocycle shall be equipped with at least one headlight which shall be of a type that has been approved by the Superintendent and shall be capable of projecting sufficient light to the front of such motorcycle or autocycle to render discernible a person or object at a distance of 200 feet. However, the lights shall not project a glaring or dazzling light to persons approaching such motorcycles or autocycles. In addition, each motorcycle or autocycle may be equipped with not more than two auxiliary headlights of a type approved by the Superintendent.

Don't think the position light counts as "headlight" as it does not even come close to projecting a beam pattern, even when replaced with a really bright LED.  It's the same way as the amber turn signal pods that stay lit on some bikes.

Besides, lots of vehicles these days come with DRL lights that are typically a strip of LEDs.  Those almost always stay lit even if headlights and fog lights are all ON.
